Fix ‘Open in New Tab/Window’ problem in IE8

Internet Explorer 8 has a bug – if you right-click a link and then “Open in new tab”, it may not open in a new tab (but in a new window instead).

Re-registering DLL files associated with Internet Explorer 8 may fix this issue. Follow the steps below:

Go to Start > Run, type each of the commands below and hit enter. You will get a confirmation message “DllRegisterServer in PROCESS_NAME succeeded”, where PROCESS_NAME varies in each step. Hit OK, then proceed to enter the next command.

regsvr32 urlmon.dll
regsvr32 actxprxy.dll
regsvr32 shdocvw.dll
regsvr32 mshtml.dll
regsvr32 browseui.dll
regsvr32 jscript.dll
regsvr32 vbscript.dll
regsvr32 oleaut32.dll
